GREAT AMERICAN AUTHORS
A FORWARD LOOK

They had what they called "An Author's Reading" down at the schoolhouse the other night. The big posters announced the event in their largest type. Below the heading was the statement that "Miss Annie Belle Lee, the distinguished author, will read from the manuscript of her new book for the benefit'of the Ladies' Aid Society," and that a silver offering would be taken at the door.
You remember how people talked about the matter. Some thought that the village was getting to be almost a city, since it could have "Author's Readings." And some others thought it was great doings if Miss Annie Belle Lee should be called an "author," for everybody had known her ever since she was a little girl. The village paper, the News Index, had printed some of her verses down in the "Poet's Corner," but very few people liad read them. One time, you remember,* father read some of them and then laughed and called them sentimental, and mother had said they were "sweet," and your uncle, who was very wise and knew all about dictionaries and the like, had smiled and said "So Annie Belle is an author, now." And the editor put a note in his paper about "Miss Annie Belle Lee, our distinguished fellow townswoman" and said that "this gifted young lady is to delight her friends by giving an Author's Reading," etc. But you thought you would like to go to see what this sort of entertainment would be like, and you wondered what she would do, and your mother and Aunt Jane wondered what she would wear, and father said he had to go back to the office and work that night.

Now it is perfectly true that in these days of printed books
